good morning, everyone. i'm harry smith. >> i'm maggie rodriguez. yesterday we showed you this video of a woman increase california being rescued in a creek. but these firefighters step in, resk their own lives to get her out. and fortunately she lost her son and her husband in this tranldy, but she is alive thanks entirely to them. but we begin with wall street where the dow has been on a steady climb for more than a year. yesterday it closed above the 11,000 mark for the first time since september of 2008. rebecca jarvis is here it teto us what all this means. how far have we come since the worst of the recession? >> a long way. we're up 68% on the dow since the march lows during the recession in 2009, but we still have a long way to go to recoup
7:02 am
the losses that we've taken over last couple years in order to get the dow back to where it was, we still have 29% more to climb on the dow. and things are looking like it's not going to be as fast as we saw the turnaround to this point in time. >> and something that's important to point out is that the stock market does not always mirror the economy. so i wouldn't be surprised if people are skeptical that it does that necessarily mean the economy is bouncing back, too. >> such a good point. the stock market is trying to reflect and forecast what the economy can be out in the future. and right now we haven't seen the kind of economic growth that stocks are actually reflecting. so some would say stocks are pricing in a recovery, but it's a recovery we haven't seen at this point. >> one indication that it's a true recovery will be when we see the reports coming out later this week of these major companies and whether they've turned a profit, but it has to be a real profit based on sales. >> a legitimate profit. you want to see top lean growth. you want to see companies generating sales and not just
7:03 am
cost cutting their way to profits because cost cutting equates to jobs loss. and we want to see more jobs come back in order for the economy to grow and sustain growth long term. >> let's say we see the companies turning profits. it's still not unusual to see a pull back. >> not unusual at all. and many are anticipating that we will see a pull back coming up here in the next couple of weeks. we're in the midst of earnings season. we will hear from tech titans like google, we'll hear from top financial firms like jpmorgan, and previously in the last two years, what we've seen is after hearing reports from these companies, even when they're good, stocks tend to pull back right after we hear from these companies. >> it's what happens after the pull back that we'll look for. >> exactly. >> thank you so much. now over to harry. now to washington and specifically the white house where president obama's nuclear summit wraps up today. it's the largest gathering of
7:04 am
world leaders hosted by a u.s. president since the 1945 conference that founded the united nations. and it's already yielded some quick results. cbs news chief white house correspondent has the details. >> reporter: the president is working on two fronts at this h summit. publicly, he is pushing these 46 nations to sign on to measures to lock up those loose nuclear tirms a materials, enough to make 120,000 nuclear bombs. privately he's spending a lot of time pushing china to sign on to u.n. sanctions depends iran. groups like al qaeda are aggressively trying to obtain loose nuclear materials and would not hesitate to use them according to tpresident's top terrorism adviser. >> we cannot wait any loaningng. >> reporter: ukraine announced it will send its entire stockpile out of the country, perhaps to the united states, by
7:05 am
2012. in an hour and a half sideline meeting with china's president, president obama stressed the need for quick action against iran's nuclear program. china, which is key because it has veto power in the united nations security council, has shown a new willingness to consider sanctions against iran, but is still reluctant to fully endorse them because it gets so much of its oil from iran. cbs news, national kurt analyst juan sa rat itity says failure to stop iran's nuclear program could have catastrophic consequences. >> if iran acquires nuclear weapons or the expertise, you will see a nuclear arms race in the heart of the middle east are sue any arab states like saudi arabia, egiptypt feeling the ne to compete and develop their own nuclear material. >> reporter: now, at most international sum itds, they try to lower expectations to kind of soften the disappoint of not accomplishing much. at this summit, the president is
7:06 am
taking the opposite approach. he is building up expectations promising that by the end of the day, there will be a concrete plan of specific actions to lock up those loose nukes. >> we'll look for you to the evening news tonight then, chip. thank you very much. the tennessee woman who sent herred a don'ted son back to russian alone on an airplane is refusing to couldn refusing to cooperate with authorities. whit johnson is in shelbyville with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the state department is sending a high level delegation to russia to address the adoption issue. what federal officials aren't doing is sending anybody here to shelbyville to help local authorities who are struggling to sort out the case. the tennessee woman who adopted a boy from russia, then sent him back with a one-way plane ticket, has chosen not to speak to stress gators. >> it's hard to deal with this case. >> reporter: sheriff randall
7:07 am
boyce says torry hansen's decision strains an already confusion and complicated case. >> what we're going to do is everything we're big now do to make it right. >> reporter: his office is exploring possible charges from child endangerment to abuse. >> all i know is if there are allegations of abuse, so my job is to find out if in fact there was is something to support it. >> reporter: this is the government hopes its upcoming trip to moscow repairs adoption relations. russia has threatsened to freeze adoptions. sdl i think the arrangements are still being worked out, but cheerily this latest situation will be among those things discussed. >> reporter: americans adopteded nearly 1600 russian children last year. a seattle based agency that facilitated artyom savelyev's adoption said it was shocked and saddened by this turn of events. another family who adopted through the same agency says behavior problems are no reason to give up on a life long
7:08 am
commitment. >> just very sad and disappointed because i do, i think there are resources out there that she could have tapped into. >> reporter: no one has answered the door here at the hansen home for several days. the sheriff says he's una waiver any previous incidents involving the family. harry? >> whit johnson in shelbyville. thank you. joining us now from moscow is u.s. am brass door to russia, john beyrle. mr. ambassador, good morning. >> good morning. >> you can give us any late word on artyom's health, his welfare, who is taking care of him? >> justin artyom is in one of the children's hospitals in moscow. we're in touch with the russian authorities at the hospital, also the russian ministry of foreign affairs. so we know he's being very well cared for right now. and we expect probably to go into see him a bit later today or tomorrow. >> russians are outraged by
7:09 am
this. a russian friend of ours told us people in russia would not so much as let a little kitten out alone on the street so much as have -- put a young boy on an airplane and be sent back into the country the way this young child has been treated. are you feeling that same sort of outrage? >> definitely. there's been quite a lot of commentary on this in the russian press. i read a lot of russian blogs. but i have to say that it mirrors what i've been hearing from the united states, as well. a lot of people in the united states share that bewilderment that a parent would do this. >> there are about 1600 adoptions from russian that go to the united states every year, many of these are in flux now, many would dfsh be parents are very much on the fence wondering what's going to happen in the future. are you confident that the
7:10 am
russians will in the end say yes we want to continue allowing americans to adopt kids from russia? >> s, i think so. we've made very clear to the russian side that we're willing to talk with them about some sort of a bilateral understanding where we assure that these sorts of things really can't happen, that we'd look more closely at the placement, the follow-up, where the children come from in russia. and our proposal to send a team out here to moscow has been accepted now by the russian government in principal and we're orking out the dates. probably next week when we'll start more formal discussions. >> we do appreciate your time this morning. and thank you very much and wish you good luck. >> thank you. now let's get the rest of the day's news. >> let's check in with betty nguyen who is in for erica hill

7:14 am

7:32 am
arrive. the rescue team moved quickly after spotting owe began go under. and on the second try, pulled her unconscious body from the 50 degree water to safety. now hogan is no doubt lucky to be alive. this was a difficult rescue. the firefighters seen hoisting her out of the water dislocated his shoulder and tore a ligament during that rescue. >> we'll talk to him right now and his partner. joining us exclusively this morning from concord, california, the two heros who saved janet's wlf. firefighter dave manzeck was the guy you saw lowered into the water, broughtler out and controlling the hoist inside the chopper was shaun bouyea. gentlemen, good morning. >> good morning. >> shaun, you were the first to spot janet in the water. describe what you saw. >> i saw the lady treading water
7:33 am
and trying to stay afloat the best she could. >> you could tell she was alive though, still? >> yes, i could see her head only. the rest of her body was submerged. >> so your first attempt is you throw down the lean by itself. what happens? >> she went underneath us. we were unable to lower the line quick enough to her. >> so then you see her go down, what was it, a 15 foot water fall? >> yes, she went over a little water fall and she went under water and then popped up by two to three more times. >> so even after all that, she is still hanging on. at that point you decide to bring dave in, so you hook him up to the line and lower him down into the water. i'd like to ask you, dave, now if i may, as you were going down into the water, and this water is moving at 20 miles an hour, what were conditions like and what were you thinking? >> what you're seeing on the film, that is my second attempt. the water is going estimated
7:34 am
about 20 miles an hour. you're fighting the wind of the helicopter and just trying your best to hold on. in doing so, we are trained very well with my department and with chp, we train together, and just do what you're trained. grab them and get them on to the land for safety. >> but when you first got in the water, she had disappeared depend, hadn't she? >> correct. yes. fortunately for me, shaun dropped me down a little bit into the water. i got kind of in the churn is what we call it, so i was actually under water a little bit. during that time, her head hit my knee and then i kicked her out and was able to kick her out on to a nice rock. and then readjust and then come back in for what you saw on the camera. and then she was in cardiac
7:35 am

7:36 am
rushing water. >> unfortunately, you were able to save everybody that day, gentlemen, so it was a good day because janet is alive, but a heartbreaking day at the same time, wouldn't you say, dave? >> absolutely. i absolutely agree with that. that's well said. >> her husband and her son are gone, but she owes you two the world ap. and i commend both of you. thank you so much. >> thank you, maggie. complain 36 now. 7:36 now. >> great story. very impressive work on both their parts beforen 36 now. 7:36 now. >> great story. very impressive work on both their parts before dave is at the weather board. >> i'll try to do some impressive work. may not deliver, but i'll try. we'll check in the northern great lakeses in section of the mid atlantic states. cooler temperatures and great skies, potentially some rain for these areas, as well. much of the rest of the eastern half of the country looks really

>> announcer: this weather report sponsored by trugreen. call 866-true you gregreen toda healthy green lawn. trugreen, go greener. that's a quick look at your weather forecast. as we've been reporting, conan o'brien is heading back to tv. cable tv. cbs news correspondent ben tracy reports.
8:07 am
>> let's go, conan. >> reporter: his fans calling themselves team coco have made conan's tour a sellout. >> coco is back. >> reporter: but it remains to be seen if they'll follow him to tbs, the cable network better known for movies and reruns. in a tongue in cheek statement, o'brien said in three months i've gone from network television to twitter, to performing live in theaters, and now i'm headed to basic cable. my plan is working perfectly. >> i think it's a great thing for conan. here he's kind of getting his own network. we'll see tbs turn into the conan network. >> reporter: in january, o'brien was ousted as host of the "tonight show" after a ratings nose dive let him with only about 2 million viewers. >> i may be soon be available for children parties. >> imagine how tbs would feel if those millions of people that watched conan on the "tonight show" now witched over to tbs. they'd be thrilled. >> reporter: conan's new show
8:08 am
begins in november airing at 11:00 p.m. and reaching about 60% of the country. ironically, that bumps george lopez's show to midnight, but unlike at nbc, lopez welcomed the change on his show last night. >> everybody's heard of i'm with coco, but now everybody with loco. >> reporter: tbs is trying to brand itself as a comedy forrer house. but they will have stiff competition from another comedic duo, jon stewart and steven company bear. so a new hate night race is just getting started. ben tracy, cbs news, hollywood. >> conan launched his new live comedy tour last night in eugene, oregon and that's where dalton voss this morni dalton ross is this morning. i know you were there for the show last night. you're standing on the very stage where conan kicked off his legally prohibited from being funny on television tour. how was it? >> yeah, i figure if i got on
8:09 am
stage, maybe i'll get a late might deal, as well pep last night we saw conan doing something we haven't seen in a long time and that's having fun. he was singing, he was playing his gi tuitar. he was running up and down the aisles hugging fans and stuff and he's not going to be on tv for another seven months, but he really seemed like a free man and his first line out of the gate really pointed on-to-that where he said i'm pot supposed to admit this, but i really miss the applause. and i think he did and i think he got a big dose of it last night. >> i'm sure he misses being on tv. he'll be back there coming up very soon in november on tbs. did he talk about that at all last night? >> he referenced it right at the start. the news came out yesterday a few hours before the show, so he said, you know, you may have heard i have a new job. and in typical self-deprecating style, he said i'll be working in the cord roy department at the local banana republic. so if the deal doesn't work out, at least he is it have a backup.
8:10 am
>> because there's no question it's a risk. >> well, i think it's a smart move. it's a savvy move. a lot of people were caught off guard by it, but it's already been established that conan in terms of mass numbers cannot compete with jay and dave. so even if he went to fox or another network, that wasn't going to change. by going to cable, he's taken his game to another field. he is now competing with jon stewart and stephen colbert, he's not expected to have these mass numbers. as long as he brings his younger audience to tbs, it will be successful. >> when you consider 2500 people, young people, went to see that show last night, he's got 30 or more cities to go, if can he get this young revolution ala president obama to follow him, it could be huge. >> that's exactly right. and people are so behind him because of what he's gone through the past few months. you're finding people that maybe weren't even originally conan fans but seeing the way he's gone through this whole situation and handled himself, now they relate to him.
8:11 am
and it really plays to his best comedic strengths. he spent the entire show last night sort of making fun of his predicament and casting himself as this sort of like guy that's been trying to get back into shape. literally get back in for shape. that was the opening showed him fat, beard, looking like he was eating pizza all day and now he's getting back h to the groove. >> and he has george lopez on his side, which is huge because it's ironic that he bumped george lopez from that slot like jay leno did to him. but there's no animosity at all. >> no, i think it could be good for george lopez. i think george lopez at midnight following conan will probably be better than george lopez alone at 11:00. it definitely puts the spotlight on tbs and late night and that will help both conan and george lopez i think. >> we'll see. dole t dalton ross, thanks so much. up next, can certain kinds of food protect from you alzheimer's? we'll have the latest research when we return. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.

in this morning's "health watch," fighting alzheimer's with food. alzheimer's affects 5.3 million americans. there is no cure. but there may be a way to help prevent it. this is a beg story this morning. dr. jennifer ashton is here with some new research. between morni good morning. what is the headline here, we're talking about a 40% lowering of risk for alzheimer's by doing severally what? >> eating well. let's talk about the study. it was done out of columbia university. they looked at over 2,000 people in the new york area over the age of 65, followed them for an average of four years. and found that those who ate a relatively healthy diet, and we'll talk about what that means, had up to a 40% reduced risk of developing alzheimer's. >> do you know how big a headline that is?
8:16 am
>> that's huge. >> alzheimer's affected my father, my father-in-law, every family in america has been affected by that. if you could roll it back by 40% just by eating differently? >> and much better to prevent it than to treat it once it's started. so what they found was that not just specific foods, but foods in combination with each other had a protective effect. so we're talking about foods that were high in vitamins e and b-12, high in folate and owe may xwa 3 fatty as sids. so things like nut, fish, salmon or oily physicians, leaf if i green vegetables. >> and these are the things that we talk about on a regular basis being heart healthy and all these other kinds of things. so basically if you're on this line of food, it will pay all kinds of dividends. >> you don't want to take all the fun out life, but thing like high in butter or cheeses or brie which i on personally love, high in red meat, we're not saying never, but this moderation.
8:17 am
>> is there anything else in the research about lifestyle factors? >> the things that are good for your heart are also good for your brain and vice versa. so keep your weight down, minimize tack bow company, alcohol use and exercise. this isn't the only piece of the puzzle, but probably a big part of it. >> you would certainly think that would be a red flag for a lot of people. if they really -- if this is really predictive, and i'm sure this will be gone on we have a fine tooth comb, if this is really predictive, it's a huge, huge -- >> very important and important to start early. >> let's talk about this other sort of significant study done with alzheimer's and driving. what is the headline here? >> this is a critically and very difficult decision that many families are someone with always timer's will have to make. we know people with alzheimer's can be at greater risk for motor vehicle accidents and it can be difficult to know when do you that. the bottom line is it needs to be individualized.
8:18 am
but there can be some signs. if you have an older person who is putting on less miles as the time goes by, that might be one sign. >> it would be an indication to you as a caregiver. >> you might want to reevaluate how often they're driving. if they're avoiding certain driving situations, if they're having little fender-benders or increased accidentses, getting minor violations, or they're having aggressive or impulsive habits, that's not someone you you want behind the wheel. >> is there like a test or something that you can say dad we need to take to you so-and-so? >> there's no one definitive test. it's a combination of factors. but you want to talk to your doctor and get behind the situation before it becomes a problem. >> doctor, thank you very much. tomorrow dr. ashton will have important information for expectant parents about newborn screening tests. and still to come, if you're watching your pennies, but want your home to look like a million bucks, we'll show you how to

8:33 am
great golf weather. nicer and sunshine here i that's a quick look at your weather picture. now with more on spanking, here's harry. we've always heard spare the rod, spoil the child. turns out the opposite may be true. a new study in the journal pediatric suggests that spanking and other forms of corporal punishment could lead to
8:34 am
aggressive behavior from the kids. i remember as a kid there was some paddle, this wooden paddle, that was kept at hand all the time and was used with some degree of regularity in our house hold. were you spanked is this. >> i was spanked all the time. i was a terrible kid. but we turned out okay. here we are, right? >> i don't know, you should ask my psychiatrist. this is a trend over the last 50 years or so, this whole thing of corporal punishment is bad in every way, shape or form. you do the radio show. what was the feedback like? >> a school psychologist called and said some kids are just aggressive and she knows kids that were not hit as children that she's known for 20 years and she said they're just aggressive children. and that's the important part of the study. there are certain children that are born with aggressive tendencies. >> let's look at the study because it's 2500 mothers and it tracked pretty considerable
8:35 am
amount of time. and what are the specifics here? 46% no spanking at all. >> and then they had a percentage of women, 28%, that had spanked the children one to two times in the last month. and then 26% that said they spanked two or more times in the last month. >> and what did they learn about the kids as a result of the spanking? >> here's what's important about the study. the trole for moms who were maybe alcoholics or depressed or that were already in an aggressive environment, that's what's new about this study. and they found that those moms, that there was nothing else going on but spanking, caused aggressive children. that by the time the child was five, they were aggressive, they were bullies, they were bullying siblings, bullying fellow students. but the caution is, so if you have a child that's aggressive, yes, you are encouraging their aggressive tendencies. but if you have a child that's aggressive, they're going to be aggressive. >> and you have ideas about
8:36 am
alternative kinds of behavior modification as it were. as opposed to using spanking. let's go through some of them. >> you can't reason with a 3-year-old. you can try, but the brain is not developed yet to understand korns que cones quenlss of reasoning. but they come understand you can't play with your favorite toy, see your favorite friend. those consequences make more sense. so if you don't want to spank that's another alternative. >> and sometimes trying to really reinforce the positive behavior, how well does that work? >> if you're going to punish the negative behavior, you've got to encourage the positive behavior. for some kids, positive reinforcement, much more effective. >> how about time-outs. do time-outs work? >> time-outs work only if you explain why you're giving a time-out. if you're just sitting on the step and you're going why am i on this step, it's not going to have any affect whatsoever. but you say to the child here's why you're in a time-out because you pulled the dog's ear.
8:37 am
we don't want you to do that. that's why you're sitting here. >> and you have to enforce the time-out. >> exactly. consequence is very important. you can't say i'm giving you a time-out -- >> 24 hours is probably too long. >> well, it depends on the child. >> you also say parents, though, should -- as their tempers are starting to go up, they're the ones who probably ought to be thinking about taking a time-out. >> you have to say to yourself i'm the one that needs the time-out, i need to breathe, calm down before i react to my child's bad behavior. >> cooper lawrence, thanks so much. do appreciate it. and we ten our retail versus resale series this morning with the home edition. americans spend more than $7 billion every year on home furnishings and decor. but sprucing up your house doesn't have to cost a fortune. as susan koeppen is here to show us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i love this game. >> this is a fun game. >> i usually do really well like with clothing and jewelry, but
8:38 am
i've been looking at all this and i don't think i'm going to do as well. >> we have a beautiful living room set, so it's a little tricky this morning. >> i never really thought of buying home furnishings resale. is this this a good time to do that? and why is that? >> it's a really good time because think about it, it's springtime. every's doing some spring cleaning. so they are getting rid of what they think is junk. it may be a treasure for you. >> test me. >> so let's start with the chairs. we have these two orange chairs. nice fluffy, nice material. it's your job to tell me which one you think is resale. and the folks at home can play along, as well. >> this is hard because the fabric is in great shape. the legs are not scratched on either one. this looks more threat troe, but that could be in style. so a complete guess, i'm going to say this one is resale. >> this one in front of me is the retail. you are standing in front of resale. and if you take a look at the difference in 38 for the
8:39 am

i always got it at work. then i turned 65, got medicare and figured... i'm set. wrong. before long, i have a mountain of brochures about something called medigap. tried reading them.
8:57 am
but this one made sense. it's from carefirst bluecross blueshield. easy to understand-not written in some language only insurance people speak. and it finally explains why i - and you - need medigap. medicare pays only 80% of most medical services it covers. think about that. it leaves 20% for us. and who knows how much that could be. so i enrolled in medigap from carefirst. got to keep my doctors, choose my hospitals. even got the early-enrollment discount. and my acceptance- guaranteed. carefirst bluecross blueshield wants you to know more. so the guide is free. read it. and never climb this mountain.
